Small compromises can easily grow and before you realise it, you’re compromising in bigger areas too. Do you lie to look better than others? Perhaps you decide to go to a party that you know your parents wouldn’t approve of. Are you dating the guy that looks cute, but who you know isn’t a good influence? Each day these small decisions that you make set the tone and direction for your life.
If left unchecked, small compromises will eventually lead you down a path that you never intended. It can be easy to begin to compromise. Many times, you don’t even realise that you’ve compromised in an area. Compromises can happen in big areas of your life, but they also happen in the smaller ones too.
Usually, compromise happens in small things. Small choices have gotten you to where you are at so far. Ask yourself the question, do you like the person you’ve become? Do you make godly choices even in the small things? Have you begun to compromise your beliefs?
The Bible says “if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from everything we’ve done wrong. – 1 Jn 1:9 (CEB).
To break free from compromise you’ve got to really get into God. Start by reflecting and confessing today!
Yahweh, forgive me for compromising and dropping my spiritual standards. Father, help me to make the right choices so I don’t jeopardise my relationship with You, my colleagues, and others around me in Christ’s name Amen!
